Tahira Kashyap recently made her debut as a filmmaker. Kashyap directed Toffee in 2018 which follows the story of two young girls who become friends despite the class difference. Kashyap later also directed Pinni starring Neena Gupta. Pinni was released as a part of the anthology Zindagi in Short.
She is now set to direct a full feature film. In a recent interview she confessed she would like to direct Ayushmann Khurrana in the future. However Kashyap believes that she needs to earn a reputable position as a director before approaching Khurrana.
In a recent interview with PTI, Kashayp said, “I am taking baby steps. I am slowly and gradually moving towards that direction. My films, ‘Toffee’ and ‘Pinni’ received a lot of love. I have written a couple of feature films. The intention is to make a feature film. Because of this lockdown, now there is a pause button on everybody’s lives. I don’t know what the future holds but the dreams and aspirations are certainly there."
“I would really love to work with him from the perspective of directing a wonderful artist. He has grown tremendously as an artist. But at the same time, he is senior to me when it comes to working. So I need to earn myself a couple of films or a position where I deserve to direct him, " she added.
She concluded saying, "I am also fretting because I don’t know how it would be because we are husband and wife too. So I don’t know how the situation will be like- will there be fireworks on the set or we would be able to maintain the absolute director-actor decorum. That is something we would get to know."
